rage Issue 5 - Indie and Dance Tour News

The second law of listings journalism states that: the more listings included, the higher the chance that your favoutite band won't be included....or something like that. So, ignoring common convention and risking the wrath of those who think that the radio times doesn't include enough listings, we have decided to offer just a few selected tour dates. Most of those below have been covered in the reading/phoenix/reviews section of this issue, so if your fave group aren't here, stop whingeing and go and buy the NME......Indie tours Dance events
